Look at what I found on the Online Galleries website!
Size: Approx: 68cm long (overall)
Provenance: Recently found in an attic in Bedfordshire
The front and back of this bag are decorated in the same way with
fine glass beads on buckskin and with a cut parfleche section below
wrapped in red, purple and yellow dyed porcupine quillwork.
In spite of the general similarities between the tribes of the plains
the decorative work of each group was distinctive, although the
identifiable patters and colours changed periodically with the
assimilation of the traditional designs of other tribes and the impact
of trade goods.
On the northern plains it was the Western Sioux who developed the
widely spaced designs of abstract triangles, boxes and stepped lines
against blue or white fields of beads, such as there is on this pipe
